The client, an English family in love with Barcelona and its friendly atmosphere, acquired the apartment as a holiday home. They wanted to change the distribution and preserve as many traditional elements as possible, while introducing contemporary and elegant new elements. The apartment offers a comfortable, hotel like atmosphere and allocates a spacious living room and three bedroom suites. Therefore, a complete redistribution including structural changes was needed.

The design looks for the contrast between the traditional elements, serving as a base, and the contemporary custom made new furniture pieces that are layered on top of the original space while keeping a distance with it.

Functionally there are two different day and night areas that needed a differentiated feeling. The day area is formed by the entrance vestibule, the corridor, the kitchen and the living room; all well connected with each other. The night area is formed by three independent bedroom suites, to provide some privacy for three different families.
